Was it in August? Just go into Sephora. I didn't get an email either, but my bday is at the end of the month. When I made a purchase, they scanned my rewards card and said "oh you have a free bday gift". There were two choices, I forget the first one. The one I chose had a lip crayon, a mini lipstick, and a sample of a lip scrub, and a sample of a lip balm. Not bad for an unexpected freebie.

Hottopic was the same - when they checked my account, they told me I got $5 off for being my birthday month. No email, and I didn't know about it in advance.

Yep, it was actually yesterday! lol.. I messaged the places I didn't get the promos for and got most of them sorted out.

Shoppers doesn't do the points anymore, Pita Pit applied the points to my account, Sephora told me to go into the store any time this month to claim it, Rocky Mountain doesn't do anything for birthday's anymore, Starbucks will only give you a free drink if you have purchased something within the last 12 months as another user mentioned here, Ardene resent me the promo code (still not sure what it is, I'll have to see when I go in to the shop), New York Fries you have to load your card with money at least once to receive the free fries, Edible Arragements you have to make at least a 25 dollar purchase before you are eligible.

David's Tea and Quizno's still haven't responded to my e-mails, so not sure what's going on there.

@CloverNaveen -Starbucks changed the freebie to one you earn in a membership year as long as you earned 300 stars in that year. The free food or drink freebie used to be given without the minimum star requirement until last year, when the program changed.

Alert, Nunavut
The booster juice one sure is strange. Stuck to one location but apparently valid for 6 months after your bday.

Don't think this is accurate ... -- My birthday is September 4th ... and I just received (this morning) an email from Starbucks (same basically as it was a year ago) for a free drink or a free food item on my birth day ONLY. ( NO minimum stars needed ... as I got almost none anyhow lol )

Just had my freebie this morning there at Starbucks ... Took breakfast sandwich with bacon ... $4.95 plus taxes ... FREE

You have to mention to them that it's free cuz it's Birthday freebie ... then they'll find it on their screen somewhere.

He didn't know originally what freebie I was talking about ... Until I told him it was "birthday freebie" :)

P.S.

I see Harvey's sent me their Freebie email not long ago as well ... - their regular original burger (this one is good) ... or a veggie one ...

Maybe I'll stop there for lunch later on today, lol :D

On Sunday had a birthday freebie from Tim Horton's double double visa i guess ... Any size hot drink ... plus box of 10 timbits ... - took extra large tea ... but they didn't have any tim bits left ... so I had them substitute those with 10 mini strudels instead, lol ... that were better than timbits :)

Boston pizza .. and Montana i see sent me birthday free desert ... lol ... but screw that ... not gonna bother with free desert :)

I can go to Danny's I guess for free breakfast ... (with coffee etc purchase) ... but don't think I am gonna bother. :)

I don't buy at Starbucks ... with the exception when they'd send some SUPER DUPER deal, lol ... like for example their, seemingly yearly (for me) email saying ... make any purchase / buy a drink or food item and maintain your GOLD status for another year... -- then I stop there and get small coffee or tea (and have a free refill).

So i guess that kind of transaction would count as a "star earning" one ... and qualifies one for Birthday freebie.

Plus, thinking back to last year ... (and year before) ... I think they sent me email with offer that sounded very good to me ... and I also participated in it ... Offer like this one I think:

"Buy any of your favorite drink or food item ... and come the next day -- we'll load your account with "any of your favorite food item for FREE" deal.

So pretty sure i participated in this kind of deal for the last 2 years ...

Pretty good deal basically ... - you go there and get a small coffee or tea etc ... (have a free refill even if wanted) ... cost - $2.40 or so ... and next day they give you any food item freebie ... that cost something like $5 for example ... (say, if you take their egg and bacon with cheese sandwich) :)

Any of those "participations" count as "star earning" transaction, at the same time ... and would qualify one for Birthday Freebie by the sounds of it :)
